"You know what? The bastard blows me out of the water. This guy writes Maine like Ardai writes New York. If you're not reading him, you don't know what you're missing." --Chris F. Holm, author of "The Collector" series, The Killing Kind, and Red Right Hand.

"A refreshingly new voice in noir." --Ed Kurtz, author of Nothing You Can Do and The Rib From Which I Remake the World.

"A glorious boilermaker of noir and East Coast gothic. The action is taut as a sprung snare and Bagley tightens the screws with every page." -- Laird Barron, author of Swift to Chase and Blood Standard.

Is it possible to revise 156 pages in a single nine hour period?

Yes it is.

Now I need a shower, a burger and a beer.

Not necessarily in that order.

Well done. i've been banging out edits myself, but this bests my 311 pages in a week by a damn sight...

Between last night and this morning, I added another 1300 words. Somebody stop me. Please.

It's out the virtual door now. My agent will read it over the weekend.

Back to work on the next book...

Hey man, congratulations. Nothing like sending it out the door and not having to think about it for a few days.
